The Adam Quest

The Adam Quest

On 4/2 Marturo wrote: When Stafford then explains why his sympathies ultimately lie with evolutionary creationism, the overall structural nature of the book makes more sense. As you can see from the above outline, we move progressively through the book from strong young earth creationism, on to intelligent design, and then ... The Adam Quest

Death By Living

Death By Living

On 8/6 Marturo wrote: Much like his last foray into non-fiction, N. D. Wilson's Death By Living: Life Is Meant To Be Spent does not lend itself to easy review. It is kind of a genre-breaker, but in a good way. It's non-fiction, but it's written in imaginative prose and contains a myriad of stories. It reads like meditations ...

Outreach and the Artist

Outreach and the Artist

On 6/6 Marturo wrote: It is hard to imagine two books could be any more different. Back in the fall, I reviewed Constantine Campbell’s Paul and Union With Christ, an encyclopedic study of both the exegetical and theological usage of Paul’s “in Christ” language. It was thorough, exhaustive, and top of the line NT scholarship. Apparently, ... Outreach And The Artist: Sharing The Gospel With The Arts

God's Not Dead

God's Not Dead

On 4/10 Marturo wrote: While up to this point Broocks is presenting evidence, I see him reasoning more like a presuppositionalist since he is showing that evidence cannot be made sense of, unless you presuppose God. After this chapter, he turns to more typical evidential concerns, starting first with the evidence for Jesus' ... God's Not Dead: Evidence for God In An Age of Uncertainty

Father Hunger

Father Hunger

On 1/6 Marturo wrote: On the plus side, Wilson is a superb writer and entertaining to read. He is provactive in both his thinking and his rhetorical flourishes. He is writing about an important problem in our culture and he not only outlines the problem in multiple arenas, he provides a biblically grounded solution. On the ...

A Shot of Faith (to the Head)

A Shot of Faith (to the Head)

On 9/29 Marturo wrote: Though “Plantinga For Dummies” would not have been a good title, it would capture a bit of what this book is about. Stokes did his doctoral work in philosophy at Notre Dame (much like my own philosophy prof at Dallas) and it definitely shows. However, that is more something I would notice than the ...

Real Marriage

Real Marriage

On 2/15 Marturo wrote: It's not so much that the advice is that bad (it's flawed but not horrible), or the sexual advice that deviant (it is, but they permit deviancy rather advocate it), it's just that it's all just been over-hyped. You're really being sold a book on marriage and sex BY MARK DRISCOLL! not so much a great ... Why I Don't Recommend Real Marriage
